We are headed in the right direction!
This would be my third time going to Mr Herdzik for representation. He handled two bankruptcies and is currently representing me in a support proceeding. I have a pretty good rapport with him (out of poor/fair/good/great/excellent). I’m not sure how effective he might be, but I trust that he will do his due diligence as he has done in my other two cases. Although I understand that bankruptcy and family law are two different arenas, I trust that he will handle my case with care. I have a unique case, but overall not too complex, more so straightforward. His fee was reasonable…we’ll see how it goes! I’ll be back for an update; )

Very pleasant and knowledgable.
For mother's estate. The whole process took longer than necessary. Had to contact him many times to get info on how it was proceeding. Was a learning experience.

He wouldn't return excess portion of retainer $
I hired this guy for a custody case. He's not a good lawyer. He did not advocate for me and did the bare minimum. He seemed out-of-place in the family court setting. He blindly followed the law guardian's recommendations. He filed paperwork that wasn't worded correctly which caused issues. HE DID NOT RETURN MY UNUSED RETAINER MONEY AFTER SEVERAL PHONE CALLS AND LETTERS. UPON ANOTHER LAWYER'S SUGGESTION, I SENT A LETTER VIA REGISTERED MAIL (SO I'D HAVE PROOF IT WAS SENT). ONLY THEN DID HE RETURN THE MONEY.

Go elsewhere
I hired Matthew Herdzik for my case. He was extremely poor in communication often times not getting back to me for weeks. In order to get a hold of him I would have to call the office daily until I got lucky. He also made numerous errors on my paperwork. He never gave me copies to review until after court and I looked bad in front of the judge because of this. Matthew never owned up to his fault in this matter. He also missed important deadlines in filing my paperwork and completing my reaffirmation agreement in a timely manner. I filed in July and he never completed my paperwork till sept which was already past the deadline. Because of this I can no longer have this reaffirmation done. He had the attitude of "I don't know what to tell you" and again never owned up to his fault in this matter but instead blamed it on others. I told him I wanted him to look into reopening the case in order to have this done and he did, but then sent me a letter stating because I missed the deadline the judge will not reopen the case. I would never go to him again to represent me on any case!

Absolutely no use
I used him for a divorce case and judgement case at the same time. Paid him thousands of dollars for NOTHING. I executed the judgment and got my vehicle back. I did all the work, he couldn't find any assets to seize. I did it in 2 days after I waited 2 years for him. I lived in my vehicle, cabin with no heat or water for 2 years, never did I receive any maintenance from my husband who was making 72,000 a year. He did nothing, and did not care. I would never use him for anything and seriously consider taking him to court for my money back.
